The big news for the Pics of Canada is the return of the the Maple Syrup Festival Photo Contest sponsored by the Warkworth Library and this blog. From the photo above there will be more than enough photo opportunities at this years festival. And this year there is an added Sweet Prize [see just below] if you submit your photos at the library during the Festival on Saturday March 10th or Sunday March 11th. Come to the Library, buy some bargain books, follow a quick presentation on a better photo composition and get some free photo software as well.
One topic of the presentation will be some photo composition rules of thumb
Last year the photo contest had over 100 pictures entered. Here is the top prize winner.

Or bring your images of the festival and see them projected on the Big Screen available at the Library. there will also be tipps and tutorial available on how to make your photos contest ready – see here for an example of slide show on photo errors and how to correct them before or after shooting. .
